HOW IS WEED MEASURED?
One smokes “flower” that comes in the form of a “nug.” Flower is measured & sold in grams, fractions of an ounce.
an ounce = 1 OZ = 28 grams
half ounce = 1/2 OZ = 14 grams
a quarter = 1/4 OZ = 7 grams
an eighth = 1/8 of an ounce (OZ) = 3.5 grams
a gram = a very large nug or 2-3 smaller
1 gram pre-roll = described as a “baseball bat” due to its shape & size; also available in .5 gram size
Also referred to as glass bowls, bowls and pipes, these classic smoking vessels can be used for individual hits to pass & share.
good to know
smoking from a pipe requires fire so the measure between the bowl and mouthpiece needs to be a comfortable distance. a complicated pipe to clean sucks but not as much as burned eyebrows. > speaking of cleaning: – isopropyl alcohol and table salt. lots. – pipe cleaners. all sizes. – wear clothing that can be splattered w/ the above ingredients + charred weed.
As an alternative to rolling a joint from scratch with a flat rolling paper, pre-roll cones are packed with ground flower and twisted at the end once filled.
Small and convenient with a small bowl that packs enough weed for “one hit.”
